Capitol Fax: On “war zones” and “foreign invasion”

Rich Miller notes that N'Digo publisher Hermene Hartmann was involved with Governor-elect Bruce Rauner's outreach to the Black community. She offered her comments to FOX Chicago about her work with Rauner and bringing him to Black neighborhoods to expose the many issues that exist during the governor's race.

She points to the crime and the dearth of businesses in Black neigborhoods. However, Miller has this to say about some of her comments:
Blaming “foreigners” for this problem is really odd. It’s not like they’re crowding out other potential business owners because there aren’t that many retail stores in the first place.
I hope you read the post and article and feel free to let us know your thoughts.
